What can I claim?
There are a wide range of claims that can be made depending on your circumstances.
Please see Your Rights.
How long does it take?
If matters can be agreed than the agreement is filed with the court after the pronouncement of the Decree Nisi.
If matters proceed to court then matters could take six months to a year to settle.
How long will I pay bills and legal costs until settlement?
If you do not have an income than an application for interim maintenance can be made seeking a monthly sum to cover utilities and urgent living expenses as well as fees. The amount received depends on the other party’s income.
Will all the hidden assets/income be disclosed and taken into account?
Absolutely. Full and frank disclosure is sought before any settlement is reached. See Hidden Assets & Disclosure.
